The Indian Army retaliated in force to the Pakistani provocation, a defence official said.
The jawan was from Khalane village in Maharashtra’s Dhule district. He is survived by his wife Punam Yogesh.
“Lance Naik Yogesh Muralidhar Bhadane was a brave and sincere soldier. The nation will always remain indebted to him for the supreme sacrifice and devotion to duty,” a defence spokesperson said.
